This dress hat is made out of a nylon raffia mesh base, overlaid with a woven outer of cream raffia ribbons! It has a little yellowing here & there, but nothing too serious & the effect is quite uniform, so can only really be seen close-up. The hat has a deep crown & is unlined, made to sit atop the elaborate coiffures of the time, towards the back of the head. It is unlined, but does have a toning petersham ribbon band which is quite grubby and shows signs of wear, but could probably be spot-cleaned. Please read the listing in full & supersize all photos as I do not take returns on Vintage & used items where I have mentioned any issues. It's a lovely hat, still in good structural condition, with years of wear left in it! The hat measures 21 1/2" on the inside of the inner band.
